Thanks for the heads-up. Yes, the email tag should be mandatory in the DTD; we've discussed removing this restriction, as back-issues imported via XML are often old and author emails aren't available, but we haven't come to a decision yet. In the meantime, use the <![CDATA[ ]]> work-around or supply an editorial email address.
